What were you thinking?

If you are going to do any construction these days a permit is usually required whether for new construction, or adding on to pre-existing structures, and even in some cases, for major renovations. Generally, the new construction must be inspected during construction and after completion to ensure compliance with national, regional, and local building codes.



An example of Permit Requirements:

THREE (3) Plat of Surveys showing proposed construction.

THREE (3) sets of construction plans showing compliance with City codes indicating all building, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing work as applicable. All plans must be legible and drawn to scale. Plans should be of architectural quality with sufficient detail to demonstrate code compliance and to guide construction. State law or the Plan Reviewer will determine whether or not the plans will be required to be signed and sealed by an architect and/or structural engineer licensed by the State. 


So, okay, after owning a construction business I understand that following City codes can be a bit daunting but how does one explain these?  
 


 






























  Think of the hours spent completing these jobs and you have to ask yourself  "What were you thinking!"

Unbelievable!
